Post19 Nov 2014, 00:49

well guys it's been a while , don't post much anymore but figured you might like this one...

My findings have been pretty slim at present but I'm onto a lead and will report back once I know more

Checked out the Seiko museum yesterday and found a quaint little shop where I got a Casio and an Orient ...

It's because of the earthquakes I think. Small ones are common and can still be a risk to infrastructure

Thanks for sharing. It baffles me that Seiko doesn't ensure its own watch collection are all powered on. For a digital watch the display is effectively an integral part of the dial which Seiko should be showing off eg the Pan Am is blank!

Soft chicken bone (ie cartilage) is actually one of the popular skewer dishes! Acquired taste .....

Some places should have more "usual" stuff like chicken wings and bacon wrapped cherry tomatoes and shisho leaf wrapped pork which are all great and maybe a little less challenging
